This recipe is inspired by a recipe I shared on my Instagram stories. Here I occasionally share my more spontaneous cooking ventures. They showcase my way of cooking, which is more intuitive and thus I hardly ever use recipes. Yet I find it fun to write these dishes down and share them with you.

Can you believe we’re nearing bbq and picnic season? The weather is gradually becoming more warm and pleasant, and the sun a bit brighter (well at least for us on the northern hemisphere. Oh and yes you can still go to bbq’s as a vegan, it’s all about the sides if you’d ask me! One of the side dishes I always look forward too is potato salad, and not only during bbq’s but any given time of the year I crave this stuff. Now although I love it, it’s not always plant based, so it’s about time to make a delicious recipes we all can enjoy!

It’s truly a simple recipe when you use store bought pesto, which I happened to do for this recipe, just make sure it’s vegan.

When people hear I’m vegan they usually think all I eat is salad and that I lack protein (lol), and although most of the statements made are false, I do love myself some salad! I could honestly probably eat salads for every meal, depending on what you call a salad of course. I’m not talking about just lettuce, tomato, cucumber and carrots dressed with some vinaigrette, oh no! We’re talking about a salad jam packed with flavour that will leave you feeling satisfied and full until your next big meal….

You can play with this recipe to make it your own, for this batch I used carrots to add a bit of sweetness, but why not try adding (sweet) potatoes, peas, or corn? Maybe you don’t have kidney or black beans on hand, no problem, you can use whatever bean you have on hand or prefer! Cilantro might taste like soup to you, don’t worry you can add whatever herb you like, try adding some parsley or basil. Well you catch the drift right, just have fun with it!
You can use this bowl as a little inspo for how to have to serve this dish, but just adding it over rice (find recipe for unicorn rice here) and maybe some spinach will be good enough for me. You could also eat it with some flatbread or stuff them inside some potatoes if you’re feeling adventurous!
You could even use it as a spread on some hearty flax crackers, there are no rules when it comes to how you have your food, right!?
Rainbow bowl, my latest and greatest obsession! I could eat them every day, but as much as I like a dish I can’t eat the exact same meal too many days in a row, or I’ll start disliking it. Since I think it’s important to eat as simple and vibrant as possible I decided to make some variations on one of my favorite type of bowls. You can use any type of noodle to make this bowl with, but trust me nothing beets unicorn noodles, thats a fact! To find out how they are made go over to this post….
